Not long after the american public was introduced to the antics of King Koopa and the Mario Bros. on the Nintendo console of October 1986, the next year would prove the birth of a gaming giant in the form of Rogue Trader.
Before he had his eyes set on Armageddon, the ork warlord known as Ghazakull Mag Uruk Thraka was just a young Goff in charge of a semi-large warband. Here is what Ghazakull looked like in the early days. Back before Mega-armor, and Cybork bodies. This is the period known as the "red period" for the GW studios. Aptly named since the 'Eavy Metal team, seemed to favor the color red for most of the miniatures used for catalogs and displays. (Not to mention White Dwarf.) Here he is with his retinue. I just love the back banners. What about you?
